Diddy Details Decision To ‘Reassign’ Publishing To Bad Boy Artists

Diddy is opening up about his decision to return publishing rights to Bad Boy artists and writers.  

The 53-year-old music mogul has been previously accused of “stealing” money from artists and conducting “bad” business.

The father of seven sat down for an exclusive interview with Billboard, published Wednesday.   “I decided to reassign publishing rights to the whole catalog in May or June 2021. The news is just now coming out because it took time to finalize everything… When I was looking at the catalog and everything, I was put in a position where I felt like I had to look in the mirror. I had to make sure that what I was standing for was my total truth…” 

“We live in a time where things are constantly evolving. And it was about reform for me. It was me looking at ways I could reform things as a person that’s been asking for change… It was just the right and obvious thing to do; something I’m proud I did. As a businessman, there comes a time when you have to pick purpose over profit. I’m glad that I’ve seen both sides. As a businessman, I’ve evolved and was blessed to be in a position to give the publishing back.”
